I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

An average sized biweekly paycheck. There is nothing else tolerable about this company. This place sucks.

Cons

Idiotic management in many departments. This company is truly a sinking ship. All the smart people have either left or are currently looking to flee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire incompetent employees. Stop coddling them and throw them out the door.

    Pros

    Staff level and people at or Director level are good. TD's are very good but stuck at the spindle level.

    Cons

    VP level and above is more of a club. People that do not deserve the position are there. RTP is a joke run by people who in other companies would be glorified SE's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw out the bums and ask Hitz to lead engg. again.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, stable place to work (except around quarter-end). Used to be a great culture but lost its way after CEO Dan and CFO Steve left a couple years ago.

    Cons

    Lots of the driven, high-achieving people have left. Serious people remain, the people with a sense of humor have gradually left. Doesn't seem to have the same sense of urgency it used to. Lost its soul a few years ago, lost its way toward growth around the same time. Good stable place to work, tho.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the people in the lower levels of the organization again, and not just the engineers. Find out what people really think about what could be done to turn things around.
